Arizona can’t be beat for sunny days, starry nights, dramatic desert landscapes, hiking through redstone canyons and epic golf. Choose from luxury rentals in Arizona’s top cities, including Scottsdale, Phoenix, Sedona, Tucson and more.
Scottsdale luxury rentals offer front-row seats on the area’s architectural wonders, award-winning museums, family-friendly attractions, wine-tasting rooms and more. The city exudes a posher feel than some southwestern destinations - earning it the nickname, “The Beverly Hills of the Southwest.” Luxurious overtones are evident in upscale Scottsdale vacation home rentals, world-class art galleries and celebrity-chef restaurants. Sophisticated, yes, but never pretentious. In a place of both rugged and refined beauty, residents and visitors find stimulating activities and company when they want it and peace and privacy when they need it.
The Scottsdale area provides ample diversion for long-anticipated vacations. One of the best ways to enjoy the desert playground is exploring the McDowell Sonoran Preserve with 32,000+ acres of space for hiking, biking, mountain climbing and horseback riding. Take your pick from challenging Camelback Mountain or local favorites Tom’s Thumb and Pinnacle Peak for the best views. Get to know the botanical wonders of Arizona at the Desert Botanical Garden in nearby Phoenix, with 50,000 plants, one-third of which are native - note the rich collections of agave and cacti.
While we can assure you that your Arizona luxury home rental will provide plenty of pampering extras, architecture buffs will still want to check out Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and studio in the desert from 1937 to 1959. Pop in for one of the regularly scheduled tours. Art aficionados adore the Scottsdale ArtWalk, which has been running longer than other art walks in the country. This free block party every Thursday evening introduces art fans to local galleries, enticing them with live demonstrations and complimentary wine and apps.
For golfers, Scottsdale boasts more than 200 courses, many located at luxury resorts. Experience the round of a lifetime, teeing off in the Sonoran Desert in view of Pinnacle Peak at Legend Trail Golf Club or the top-rated, private Gainey Ranch Golf Club.
Foodies and oenophiles flock to the outposts of culinary stars Charleen Badman, Matt Carter and Beau MacMillan. These and many other chefs here are among the best in the country and eager to show off their locavore-influenced menus to those who appreciate good food and wine. Nearby Phoenix boasts its fair share of gourmet eateries, too, Barrio Cafe to Beckett’s Table.
Luxury vacation rental homes in Phoenix and the east valley area around Scottsdale are within easy reach of opulent activities that elevate any getaway. Hot-air balloon companies are ready to arrange charter flights over the Sonoran Desert at dawn, with a gourmet breakfast waiting at the end of your ride. Test drive a race car, taking laps in a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin or Audi R8. Shop for haute couture and top brands at the Scottsdale Fashion Square, complete with first-class concierge service. Set off from Phoenix for a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. Or slip away to a five-star resort spa for lavish treatments and a private spa-inspired dinner.
Sedona and Tucson vacation rentals are equally brilliant spots for a Southwest getaway. Sedona’s red rocks are glorious, particularly when viewed from your private rental home’s wide porch or huge picture windows - or even a private pool. Take a helicopter tour of Anasazi cliff dwellings or go stargazing with an expert astronomer one night. Explore Diamondback Gulch by 4x4 or take a privately guided, insider tour of the Grand Canyon from Sedona or Flagstaff.
Tucson private home rentals offer a pleasant blend of cultural and natural attractions nearby. Lounge by your pool, sure, but then get out for hiking, visiting interesting museums and historical sites, upscale shopping, fantastic food and even day trips to classic Western towns like Tombstone and Bisbee.
The best way to immerse oneself in Arizona is with a private residence to call one’s own. Arizona luxury vacation rentals offer the creature comforts of home, yet the thoughtful amenities that are so deserved on vacation. Guests can spread out with family and friends in desert-inspired homes with expansive living and dining areas, chef’s kitchens, private pools, huge picture windows to let in desert vistas and more. Where you choose a private vacation home in Arizona will depend on your personal interests and planned activities, but with a home base in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, Sedona or Tucson area, you’ll be within easy reach of just about everything you can dream up.
